    6mm Saum

    Finally after a years wait due to putting clients builds in front of my own here is my 6mm Saum.



    It weighs 3.445 kgs, 7.6 lbs with suppressor.



    The 80 grain TTSXs get along fairly well



    The 90 Siroccos aren't too bad either



    It has TF barrel, light firing pin, fluted bolt, Carbon fibre stock, all the usual stuff



    Its a Remington Model 7 action, very nice it is too



    I'm going to try some 77 grain Cutting Edge bullets in it, they will be very interesting

    IIRC, its been a year...its 1-10, not really ideal, I might try the 105 Bergers just to get a velocity, I doubt they will stabilise.

    Thanks, I figured its a smaller version of my 6.5 Wsm that does its job so well

    I might build a really light 6mm or 6.5mm depends which one takes my fancy comparing the two

    Where do you get the light (tubbs?) firing pins from?

    PT&G? I want one with the bolt shroud as well, the trademe ones don't have the alloy shroud.

    Pacific Tool & Gage.

    Gunworks have them from time to time.

    Yeah cheers, that's where I got my last one (GW).

    Nice rifle too. You must have a big safe!

    I had another trip to the range again today, great results with Barnes 80 grain TTSXs at 3670 fps & the 77 grain CEB projectiles at 3800 fps with the same charge of 2225

    Also tried Berger 105 Hybrids, I knew they wouldn't stabilise but I wanted to get an idea of possible velocity with the right twist barrel, looks like 3450-3500 fps
